Close to Kos Town, this hotel offers a great choice of pools, along with easy access to the beach.
The pools are what really sell this hotel. There are 4 main ones, each with its own draw – for example, one’s adults only, while another houses the splash park. Elsewhere, you’ve got 4 restaurants, including a Greek place.
Location-wise, the hotel is in a quiet spot just a couple of minutes’ walk from a sandy beach. And when you fancy exploring, it’s a few minutes’ drive to the island capital, Kos Town.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dinner in the Greek, Italian or pool restaurants. Wine in the Italian restaurant has an extra charge. One meal a week in the Chinese à la carte restaurant.
Local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks until 24.00.
Snacks at set times.
First Choice Kids’ Club caters for 3 to 11 year olds – so brothers and sisters can join in the fun together. And most of it’s completely free. It runs 5 days a week and – outside of peak season – there are parent and toddler sessions for under 3s, too. For your peace of mind, all First Choice Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. Plus there’s a strict sign-in and out system.
Annexe twin rooms with garden view and balcony or terrace are light and airy. They come with a mini-fridge, bathrobes, tea and coffee facilities, wired internet connection and satellite TV with a music channel.

I have just returned home from a 10 night stay at The Blue Lagoon Resort, Kos. Overall we had such a brilliant week, some parts of the holiday were amazing, others not so.
We had a family room with two bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, walk in wardrobe, telly in each room. Very clean and tidy, 2/4 beds were comfy, one pillow each although there was one spare so was able to have 2. I'm sure if you're fussy like me and need 2 that you would be able to get another from reception. Our balcony was small but other family rooms had very large ones so the ouch of the draw I guess. Only used balcony to dry clothes so no real bother to us.
Kids Entertainment 5/5
Have to say the Animation team were excellent, they really made my kids holiday. From dancing around the pool, game of the day, different sporting activities such as Volleyball, French Bowls, Aqua Zumba, the kids always had something to do. For us Callum really stood out as a great Animation team member, always took the time to sit and chat and build a rapport with the kids.
The mini disco always went down well, even with the older kids. Definitely worth getting an early dinner at The BBQ restaurant then over to the tent to let the little ones dance.
My daughter only went to kids club once and she didn't really enjoy it so didn't go back, but there are clubs every day and if your children prefer to be in there than at the pool then they can spend most of the day there.
Football was a great success for my 7 year old son but also good for the adults too.
Adult Entertainment 3/5
The dancers and singers really were outstanding, very professional and entertaining. The only thing that let it down for us was that most of the adult entertainment was very samey, just a different theme but similar songs and similar dances. The adult games were entertaining but the best night of all was the Karaoke evening, wish it had finished later. The kids also got to go on the stage after and dance til late so was by far our best evening.
Wedding Venue 5/5
We attended a wedding at the Mythos Sunset Terrace which really was such a lovely venue. The wedding planner, Lina really was amazing and such a calming influence for the bride and bridesmaids. The photographer, Dean was also outstanding, would definitely recommend using both as the bride was so impressed and felt they really helped her have her dream wedding.
The Sunset Terrace was beautiful, lovely for wedding pics.
Please be aware that you need to book your table at any of the restaurant each and every night. We found this quite frustrating as it meant you had to stick to the time you had booked and as you know, sometimes you don't know how your day is going to pan out. Breakfast and lunch is grab a table which is much better.
Food really was hit or miss. Some days every dish was beautiful, others it was hard to pick something. Breakfast had some strange offerings like sprouts, chicken nuggets and pizza but there was always something to eat and plenty to choose from.
The bread amazing and lovely selection of salad. My kids mainly stuck to chips and pasta.
The water park offers jacket potato, kebabs, hamburgers, nuggets, toasties which are all nice, it's a shame there isn't a similar station round the main pool.
A la carte Chinese restaurant very strange, some of the party loved it but I wasn't so keen, not really chinesy!!
If you like alcohol and want to get drunk on the all inclusive then do not expect to do so!! This is the first hotel I've ever been to that admits they water the alcohol down. The beer has no alcohol in it. My partner drank it all day one day and it didn't even touch him. They even served a 7 year old a glass of it which makes me think it was alcohol free. They have another bar at the entertainment tent where you can buy cocktails and branded alcohol but it's not the point, it's not cheap to stay at this hotel so you expect to have a half decent offering of alcohol included in the all inclusive.
Apple and orange juice in the restaurant also a bit weird tasting. You're also supplied a bottle of water per person on day one and are expected to refill it each day. Another one can only be issued for a charge.
Waterpark/Pirate Ship 4/5
Brilliant for the kids, water park a bit of a walk but kids love it. Height restriction on the slides which was a shame as my daughter is a strong swimmer but short so was unable to use it, which upset her a lot. No point taking them to the top to try and persuade the lifeguard if they are too small as the lifeguard will not cave in!
Ferrell Cats 0/5!!!!!
Very cute little cats hanging around the restaurants, kids love them, people feed them, waiters do not shoe them away. They appear tame...however one attacked me whilst being fed by another diner and I was left with a deep cut and scratch marks up my arm. There was no provocation and I'm just glad it was me and not a child. They may look cute but they're not! Please keep your children away just in case!
Cleaners - missing items 0/5
Lastly, just a warning! I had no problems with anything going missing but a friend of mine had her wedding ring stolen as well as a number of items of clothing. The clothing was found in the cleaners cupboard but the ring never found. Make sure you keep your do not disturb sign on your door until 12pm on day of check out. My friends moved their suitcases out of their room at 10:30am but left their clothes for airport in the room, the cleaners let themselves in BEFORE they'd checked out and helped themselves to the decent clothes and left what they didn't want in the room. They didn't even clean the room there and then. Only after my friend went rummaging round the cleaning cupboard did they find their clothes. Reception just said it was a misunderstanding. Be careful.
Just returned from a family wedding at this Hotel. Hotel was amazing, Rooms were cleaned daily, There was plenty to eat and drink, However I was really disappointed on the wedding day that the Bride had to go into self service and help herself along with the wedding party, We has two days of rain and during this time other than reception there was no where to sit with friends and family as there were no seating areas, I also feel that there could of been more entertainment on during the day or at least some music around the pool, but all in All a Excellent hotel Staff were very warming and the manager of the restaurant was a true gent,
I also felt that it was understaffed for the turn around of peopleMore
Best holiday ever
To start the place was amazing. The pool area was lovely and quite for adults but if you wanted more activity you could have that also. Food was of a very high standard something for everyone. Staff were amazing especially the guy with the big eyes he was so attentive to everyone and especially children and babies he deserves a medal. We walked to kos town which took about 30 to 40 mins you could also get a bus for 2 euro just outside the hotel. A cab cost 8 euro. We also rented bikes which is a great idea as they have a bike area the whole way into town. We rented a car for 2 days and to see the island and went up to zia worth a trip. Took a boat trip to bodrum which was nice cost 20 euro each. Also took a boat trip on the Christine so relaxing and a great way to spend your day seeing some of the islands. The beach is across the road from the hotel and nice and cool. Our room was very clean and lovely views. More
We have come back from our 2 weeks holiday at the Blue Lagoon Hotel. We had 4 days of thunderstorms but this did not stop us from having an amazing time.
The children's club was run by Thomson with fully qualified staff. They were brilliant, Pete, Evie Samantha & Justine! The kids club also provide evening entertainment for the children at an additional cost which is worth every penny. Our three daughters aged 4, 5 and 10 had a ball!
THe manager Stephanos was simply the best, he treated us like family. The bar manager Stelios was a true kind gentleman. Constantine another manager was so funny, with his gorgeous eyes! All the staff at the hotel give you 100% good service.
Fantastic waterpark, a variety of pools, and restaurants to choose from.
A bus service to Kos Town will cost you 2 Euros for adults and 1 Euro for children five upwards. Plenty of shops, bars and entertainment for all!
The hotel has been expanded and there are new restaurants, and bar areas. They are worth visiting. The hotel is very beautiful. There are plenty of sunbeds with quiet locations along with busy areas for all.
We will be going back soon.More
We had a fantastic one weeks stay here on the 7th of May 2016 for our familymoon. Rooms where spotless, hotel was friendly and weather was perfect for us.
I would say the alcohol was very watered down apart from beer that wasn't very nice so my husband told me as I'm not a beer drinker.. Got to be expected to be watered down at a all inclusive tho.. Food was great lots of variety and very tasty.. Staff was very pleasant, and entertainment in the evening was really good.. The kids absolutely loved the kids club.. Going in may not everything was open here but didn't bother us at all, we got a great deal as a family of four and the hotel lived up to our expectations. More
